Contrasts

Posted by David on Sep 23, 2008 in Uncategorized

Isn’t it funny how libs get upset if the government listens in a a terrorist’s phone call? They say it violates the terrorist right to privacy. But when the son of a prominent democrat hacks in to Sarah Palin’s email, well, the silence from those same people is deafening.

Cow Killers

Posted by David on Aug 20, 2008 in Nature

Ever heard of a bug called a “CowKiller”? That’s what they are commonly called here in North Carolina. Some folks call them Velvet Ants. Actually they are wingless wasps (Dasymutilla occidentalis (Linnaeus)). Anything that is red, black and female should be left alone. Get this; only the females are wingless and can sting. The males have wings but can’t sting. I’ve seen these things many times while hunting. I found the one below in my yard in Wake county, North Carolina.

Rush Limbaugh

Posted by David on Aug 3, 2008 in In The News, Politics

Rush has been on the air on the EIB now for 20 years. I remember the first time I ever heard him on the radio. It was January of 1990. I would listen to the daily briefings on the radio in the office on Operation Desert Shield. A family member and others I knew were deployed in theater and I was keeping up with every little scrap of new I could find. One day after the noon news, I left the radio on and heard this guy doing a talk show. I thought he was some liberal on the radio making fun of people like me. He kept saying all these conservative ideas and I was waiting for the other show to drop and this guy would make fun of everything he was setting up. Only that didn’t happen and Rush and I have been friends ever since. Platonic of course. Congratulations Rush.

July 4th 2008

Posted by David on Jul 4, 2008 in House, New

Wow ! It’s been a long time since I made a post. That’s because I’ve been super busy the last several months. I decided to buy a spa and a pool. The only problem was they were attached to a house. So I had to buy the house too. Now, I’m a first time home owner. For those of you that know I’ve lived in a tiny rock house for 21 years, this is a shock. It was time for a change. My address has changed and I guess I’ll have to change a bit too. The house was built in the 1970s and no joke, it has a disco ball over the bar in the party room. There’s no shag carpet, but I bet there used to be some in here. 

I did go canoeing down the Neuse river today. It was a nice way to celebrate Independence Day. The canoe can hardly wait to get in the river again soon. It will.

Jesse Helms passed away today. Somehow it seems fitting that he should go home on this day.

Finally, a reason to vote for McCain

Posted by David on May 30, 2008 in Politics, Uncategorized

Well, it seems another movie star has threatened to leave the country if a Republican wins. It’s funny how they think we’ll vote against someone to keep them here. Well, it seems for others, this will finally be enough reason to vote McCain.

SUSAN SARANDON, who appeared in three films last year and won kudos for her TV movie “Bernard and Doris,” is still not a contented soul. She says ifJohn McCain gets elected, she will move to Italy or Canada. She adds, “It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people.”

May I help you pack?

NRA Endorsements

Posted by David on Apr 24, 2008 in Politics, Second Amendment

Well, I just got my NRA endorsements in the mail. They mail out post cards to members to let them know which candidates are most pro Second Amendment. They do it regardless of party affiliation. On the Republican side they endorsed Fred Smith for governor, Robert Pittenger for Lt. Gov. and John Tyson for judge. The primary is May 6th but you can vote early. The only person I know of on the Democrat side is Bev Perdue. Go figure.

If I find out more, I will update.

The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina in partnership with the USPS and the National Association of Letter Carriers will be having the Stamp Out Hunger Food drive. The food collection will take place May 10, 2008 and it’s easy to participate. All you have to do is leave canned food or non perishable food in your mailbox. You may also make a donation to the Food Bank. If you have too much food to fit in the mailbox, just put it in a bag either in front of the mailbox or hanging from it. Keep an eye out for a Stamp Out Hunger notice in your mail.

Postal Notice Form 3849

Posted by David on Apr 24, 2008 in Funny, Postal

Creekside Post Office uses Form 3849 to let customers know that an item is being held for the and may be picked up at the post office window unit. This is common and not a big deal. However out latest batch of forms had the incorrect phone number printed on them for customer service. The number printed on the forms were actually for a “sex chat” phone line instead of USPS customer service. Our customers were quite shocked about the recording that they heard and some of them complained all the way to Washington DC.
